“It’s so heartwarming to see everyone in our hometown to step up to help those in need,” shared Lynn. “I’m honored that some of my best friends in Nashville have been so eager to help, too, and I can’t wait to watch the great show they put on. I hope you’ll tune in with me!”
The devastating floods rushed through rural Tennessee on Saturday, August 21 after the area received more than 15 inches of rain over a six-hour period, leading to flash flooding that took the lives of 20 people – including the Lynn family’s own longtime ranch foreman Wayne Spears – and destroyed hundreds of homes. While the community has come together to support those affected, the effects of the storm will be long lasting and the efforts of the concert beneficiary, United Way of Humphreys County, will be crucial.
